Arie Luyendyk ended his season of The Bachelor in a very controversial way making him the most hated Bachelor ever and widely hated in America. Months after proposed to Becca he ambushed her and dumped her with a camera crew in tow. He thought he made the wrong decision and wanted to try with the runner-up Lauren. The two got engaged this week and are planning on getting married soon.
Bachelor Nation was not about Arie’s actions and frankly, neither was I. It wasn’t that he broke off his engagement with Becca, god knows that happens all the time with Bachelor couples, it was the way he did it. A camera crew? Really? Proposing to Lauren on live TV in front of Becca? Really?!
Some Bachelor fans were so pissed off they decided to channel their anger through action. Minnesota Representative Drew Christensen tweeted that he will author a bill banning Arie from the state. It’s especially funny because Becca is from Prior Lake, Minnesota.
He quickly got over a thousand retweets and was true to his word and started typing up a bill.
But now that the bill is being drafted he has asked Bachelor Nation with another task to get Becca to attend Minnesota’s State of the State Address. He needs 10,000 retweets on his original tweet to invite Becca.
Thankfully he just made his goal and stuck to his word. He showed proof of sending Becca an invitation to her home state’s State Address.
Rep. Christensen even showed proof of his bill banning Arie. The Freedom From Arie Luyendyk Jr. bill reads, “The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of the The Bachelor. It is state policy that every person in the state has a right to live free from the presence of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. in the state.”
Becca hasn’t responded to the tweet or the bill but I think she’d be okay with it. Her last tweet about Arie was brutal.
To be honest every state should enact an Arie ban because we all can’t move to Minnesota.
